I N T R D U C T I N 

ONCE upon a time, so the story goes, there was a rich nobleman 
who traveled far and wide in order that he might enjoy the 
comforts of the inns he visited and sample the splendid food 
and wines which graced their tables. It is related that in his search for 
excellent fare and comfortable lodgings, he sent one of his servants on 
ahead to test the amenities of those places which might be worthy of 
a visit. 

It was agreed that the servant would leave a sign on the doorpost of 
the inn, by which the master would know whether to turn aside in 
order to sample its wares and to take his' ease. If the quality of these 
were above ordinary, the symbol to be written on the doorpost was 
the word "Est." 

Should the servant discover the wines and foods to be of unusual 
excellence, he was to repeat the symbol twice, "Est. Est." One day, 
having come far by a road so untraveled that he might easily have 
missed his way, the man came upon a quaint and charming inn, deep 
by the roadside, and upon approaching closer, observed that his servant 
had written upon the doorpost "Est. Est. Est." So enamoured of the 
place did the master become that he lingered on and on. In fact, his 
journey was ended, for here he sojourned the rest of his days, deep in 
the conviction that it represented the "ne plus ultra" of his years of 
search. 



Companion to "Adventures in Good Eating." 

In "Adventures in Good Eating" many motor car pilgrims have found 
a reliable servant who has gone ahead, as it were, and posted the places 
where pleasant and satisfying meals are to be had. This companion 
volume, "Lodging for a Night," has been prepared in response to an 
encouraging and insistent demand from those who have found "Adven- 
tures" so useful. It is hoped that one will become the complement of 
the other, for there is a natural and logical sequence between eating 
and sleeping. Regardless of the sequence, however, certain it is that 
good meals and comfortable lodgings en route add immeasurably to the 
enjoyment of a trip. 



No advertising accepted. 

It is my firm purpose to follow the same scrupulous policy as to the 
material included in "Lodging for a Night" that I have pursued in the 
selection of places for listing in "Adventures." No place listed has paid 
one cent directly or indirectly to secure mention in this book and there 
is no space for sale. You paid for unprejudiced, reliable information 
when you purchased this book and your money is the only revenue to 
which I am entitled. 

It is my hope that your support and co-operation will make this 
companion volume eventually self-supporting. With this I will be 
content, for the labor of gathering and editing this material has of 
itself been fascinating, and the host of interesting friends I have made 
has been no little reward for me. 

I shall consider it a great favor if you will write me (in detail) 
about any place listed in this book, which in your opinion definitely 
should not be included in future printings. 

What makes for comfortable lodging. 

What points should we consider in deciding what places shall qualify 
for listing in "Lodging for a Night"? In my opinion the following are 
all important: 

(a) Cleanliness throughout not only clean linen but clean bedding 
also. 

(b) Quietness freedom from traffic and other noises as well as dis- 
turbing movements or conversations of other guests. 

(c) Comfortable beds science has made remarkable advance in the 
design of mattresses within recent years and there is nothing so 
conducive to restful sleep as a bed equipped with comfortable 
springs and mattress. 

(d) Courteous, adequate and unobtrusive service. Most of us like to 
have our wants anticipated. While we insist upon service that is 
adequate and readily available, we do not wish to be overwhelmed 
with it. Neither do we desire to be reminded constantly of the 
service being rendered the more unobtrusive it is, the more it is 
appreciated. 

(e) Hospitality is that quality of homelikeness that makes our sojourn 
pleasant and inspires in us the desire to return again. Whether our 
host is manager of a swanky thousand-room property or the keeper 

vi 



of a modest inn, upon his genius (and I say genius for it requires 
no ordinary ability to dispense hospitality impartially to all guests) 
and cordial personality depends the atmosphere of friendliness 
which prevails. 

It has always seemed to me that a peculiar responsibility attaches 
to the functions of an innkeeper. He is expected to radiate a spirit of 
welcome to those who seek the shelter of his caravansary; he must be 
ever solicitous of the comfort of his guests; he must evidence such 
charity toward those he takes in that he is often "taken in" himself 
by reason of his own benevolence; he must be a diplomat in even his 
most casual dealings with those who sit before his hearthstone; he is 
charged with the safety of all who tarry under the protection of his 
roof; he must provide so agreeably for the enjoyment of all who sign 
his register that they will leave reluctantly and will long to return 
again ; and withal, he must exact a modest tribute substantial enough to 
yield a profit if he is to stay in business. 

Where is that innkeeper, you say? 

Of course the ideal innkeeper is even harder to find than the much 
maligned honest lawyer. But I know the manager of one of the largest 
and most famous hotels in America's largest city where every member 
of the staff reflects the fine tradition of the innkeeper's profession. And 
I know the operators of a score or more quaint and quiet country inns 
where the host takes personal pride in looking after the welfare of 
his guests. 

The keeper of the inn is not an extinct species by any means, but the 
fact remains that, as in the business of feeding people, a distressingly 
large proportion of those who offer shelter to the weary pilgrim for a 
night, lack any adequate conception of their job, even if they are not 
actually incompetent. 

Types of accommodations Hotels. 

Of the three types of accommodations which I have chosen for listing 
in this book, hotels seem to have the preference. I believe that habit 
is in large part responsible for this, as well as the fact that a first-class 
hotel carries an established reputation and offers certain recognized 
conveniences. 

But it is my opinion that hotel management has shown a definite 
lack of ability to co-ordinate its facilities with the requirements of 
modern motor car travel. I feel sure that the hotels could easily increase 

vii 



their business if they would give consideration to the following prob- 
lems: 

(a) Allow time and space at or near the entrance for the unhurried 
unloading of cars belonging to guests. There is altogether too 
much space occupied by taxis and local cars and if unloading does 
not proceed rapidly enough to suit them, they evidence their an- 
noyance by noisily honking their horns. 

(b) Work out the garage problem so that someone would accept re- 
sponsibility for safety of articles left in a car, as well as damage 
to the car itself while in their charge. My new car (with less than 
a thousand miles on it) was delivered recently to me at my hotel, 

! with a deep scar the length of the body where it had scraped 
against some projecting surface. Yet no one knew how it had 
happened. It is almost naive the way hotel management disclaims 
responsibility. 

(c) Stop admiring their Louis XIV lounges and provide a couple of 
reception rooms near the entrance where guests who have been 
riding all day may drop their bags, rearrange their clothing, and 
have the clerk come to them to register. Then with accommoda- 
tions assigned, they can slip into an adjacent elevator and be con- 
ducted to their rooms. 

Motorists who have come several hundred miles covered with the 
dust of travel and fatigued, do not like to parade through a "Pea- 
cock Alley" with local satellites gazing at them over their lorgnettes 
and pince nez as much as to say, "Did God make you, too?" 

(d) Think of something they can do to make their hotel remembered 
well and favorably. An evening (not morning) paper (when the 
guest has time to scan it and it is the more appreciated) ; perhaps 
a small vase of fresh flowers or a bowl of fruit for which the local- 
ity may be famous. Provide current information in the room as to 
events, places of special interest to see, where the leading movie 
houses are (giving specific directions how to get there from the 
hotel) and what pictures are being shown. (Good examples: the 
information placed in each guest room by the Fryemont Inn at 
Bryson City, North Carolina, the Lee Hoffman Hotel, Cresson, Pa., 
or the Waldorf-Astoria in New York.) 

(e) Put at least two comfortable chairs in a six-dollar room. 

Only progressive action by hotel management along these or simi- 
lar lines can change the trend away from hotel accommodations 
on the part of the discriminating motoring public. 

viii 



Auto Courts an expanding development. 

The newest development in lodging facilities, and one addressed 
particularly to those who travel by auto, is the type of accommodation 
which has come to be designated as an auto court. The modern auto 
court of unified design is not to be confused with the scattered and 
heterogeneous growth of cabins of every type and description. The 
single detached cabin, even though containing elementary conveniences 
of the Chick Sales type, represents at best but a primitive effort to 
meet the modern needs of the discriminating motorist. 

The modern auto court, too, has its own peculiar advantages over 
many hotels. When under competent management, it offers the motorist 
the maximum convenience in pleasant and comfortable lodging ac- 
commodations. 

In common with the hotel, the well-operated auto court possesses 

(a) a clean, inviting atmosphere. 

(b) restful beds equipped with comfortable mattresses and supplied 
with clean bedding as well as clean linen. 

(c) full lavatory and bathroom facilities including plenty of hot 
water plus the following advantages not often found in even the 
newest hotels 

(d) opportunity to retire immediately to lodgings without being sub- 
jected to the scrutiny of lobby loafers. 

(e) convenient parking or individual garage immediately adjacent to 
your lodging necessary to unload only the personal belongings 
that you are going to need your car ready to go when you are. 

(f) quiet location away from traffic and city noises. 

(g) usually cool and comfortable by reason of cross ventilation a 
real advantage in sultry weather. 

(h) no occasion for tipping and more often than not the prices are 
more reasonable than the hotel rates. 

On the other hand, there is a reluctance on the part of many gasoline 
pilgrims to patronize even the modern auto court, which is easy to 
understand because this type of accommodation, especially east of the 
Mississippi River, is so new that many of even the better courts lack 
the reputation of a first-class hotel and the guarantee of good manage- 
ment which a reputable hotel possesses. 

Until the reputable operators of auto courts organize to guarantee 
their guests the same security and protection that the leading hotels 
afford, they will not be rewarded with the enthusiastic patronage they 
may otherwise expect. 

ix 



In order to attract those to whom this modern type of lodging ac- 
commodation might rightfully be expected to appeal and who, at the 
same time, are willing and able to pay, the operators of auto courts 
must adopt a code of ethics identical with that prevailing in any first- 
class hotel. (A majority of course do so.) 

(a) Only guests with baggage shall be accepted. 

(b) Guests shall register in the regular way and remain all night. 

(c) Drinking on the premises shall not be permitted and questionable 
trade refused. 

Guest Houses something different. 

There are, throughout the country, many lovely homes owned by 
people of culture and refinement who have felt the impress of the dim- 
cult economic conditions which have surged back and forth like waves 
over the country during the past ten years. Where the home has been 
built with a number of extra bedrooms and the arrangement is such 
that guests can be accommodated comfortably, some of these owners 
have been willing to open their homes to a limited number of discern- 
ing and discriminating travelers. 

The development seems to have originated in rural England where 
a number of the landed gentry, finding themselves in reduced circum- 
stances after the war, discovered that they could accept a few "paying 
guests" to their mutual advantage. In our country this type of accom- 
modation has come to be designated as a guest house. 

Most of these people who open their homes as overnight guest houses 
accept their obligation as host or hostess with the same responsibility 
that an innkeeper assumes. They are usually intelligent, substantial 
people, often with an obvious background of true culture and refine- 
ment. Naturally they rarely over-advertise the accommodations they 
have available, preferring to depend upon friends and neighbors to pass 
the word along. Pride of family and ownership prevents them from 
opening their doors wide to an unfeeling and unresponsive public. 

The location of an overnight guest house is of extreme importance. 
Preferably, they should be situated adjacent to, rather than directly on, 
a heavily traveled highway. A location on the edge of a village or town 
is an advantage rather than where city noises are heard. It is all the 
more desirable if the guest house is set amid expansive grounds where 
ample parking facilities are available. 

It should be remembered that an overnight guest house does not 
surrender all the rights of a private dwelling because it receives pay- 
ing guests. For this reason, to bring liquor into the house without 
the host's permission is to violate his hospitality. 



The average "tourist home" has little to commend it as a pleasing 
place to spend the night, primarily because of this very lack of con- 
venience. Neither does a boarding house qualify in the facilities that 
one expects to find in an overnight guest house. 

You should not judge a place by the length of its description in 
"Lodging for a Night." If no comment is made, it is usually because 
detailed information did not reach me in time. 

Photographs are included merely to add physical interest to the book. 
They do not signify that the place illustrated is better than some other. 

Space and the expense involved do not permit including a large 
number of photographs. 

An annual edition contemplated. 

It is expected that it will be necessary to publish annual editions 
of "Lodging for a Night" in order to insure that the information con- 
tained is timely and complete. Although I have endeavored to ascertain 
the latest information with regard to rates of each type of place men- 
tioned, I cannot guarantee its accuracy, for rates are subject to change 
without notice. The rates shown in almost every case are for two people, 
and the places listed are generally open all year unless otherwise stated. 

Not a complete list. 

In no sense is this book offered as a complete list of those places 
possessing superior lodging accommodations of such standard as to 
deserve listing. 

Therefore, in certain well-traveled sections where there are a num- 
ber of places offering excellent accommodations of the same type, it is 
my plan to show but one or two popular lodging places of each class. 
Tastes differ somewhat, even among the discriminating, so that while 
some insist on the utmost in de luxe accommodations, many others 
prefer their comforts in simple style, yet with cleanliness and con- 
venience unquestioned. It is hoped that your interest and enthusiasm 
in this quest for the more desirable places to lodge will assist in making 
this book more representative and complete. Many places, particularly 
auto courts and guest houses, failed to furnish complete information 
or responded too late for publication. 

You can make this a better directory. 

Your comments on the places listed which you visit will be appre- 
ciated. If any of the places do not measure up to your expectations, it 
will be mutually helpful if you will tell me in detail in what respect 
they failed. On the other hand, if you find the accommodations out- 

xi 



standing, your endorsement will serve to further establish their merit. 
The information you give me will not be divulged to others. 

Finally, a word of appreciation to those friends who have co-operated 
in the preparation of the first, second and third editions. The sugges- 
tions and the recommendations of places they have already sent me 
have been very helpful. 

I hope that "Lodging for a Night" will direct you to the most desir- 
able places to spend a restful night and thereby add immeasurably to 
the pleasure of your trip. I am confident that if it saves you one error 
in judgment in the selection of a place to sleep, it will have repaid you 
for your investment. 

The sale of this directory 

depends upon word of mouth, friend to friend, advertis- 
ing. There are not sufficient returns to justify a general 
announcement of the book through paid advertising. It 
has been interesting to see how many friends of "Adven- 
tures in Good Eating" have accepted "Lodgings" on the 
reputation of its sire and having observed its own good 
points, have enthusiastically told their friends about it. 
In addition, "Lodgings" has made many new friends 
strictly on its own merits. To all these friends, I am sure 
"Lodgings" will commend itself as a gratifying gift for 
holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, vacationists, travel- 
ers, as well as for bridge and contest prizes, etc. 

"Lodging for a Night" is sold 

by leading bookstores, gift shops, etc., and by many of 
the places listed, or it will be sent (anywhere in the 
United States) upon receipt of a money order or check 
for $1.50 (no stamps please). A gift card will be en- 
closed if requested. 



xii 



Rates quoted are those given me by the hotels, inns, 
guest houses, etc. and are NOT guaranteed. I regret to 
say that in some cases patrons have found higher rates 
quoted them. I shall consider it a favor if my readers 
will let me know of such charges GIVING FULL PAR- 
TICULARS. 



IF this directory is the means of pointing out places 
where you may spend the night and the accommoda- 
tions and services are satisfactory, it will be appreciated 
by the management of such places, as well as by myself, 
if you will say to the host or hostess that you came by 
reason of their being included in this book. This will 
greatly aid in gaining a wider distribution of the book 
through its sale by a majority of the places listed. Not 
only does this insure a profit to them but also it will pro- 
vide a sufficient sale to the public so that the cost of pub- 
lication will be met. 



PLEASE NOTE 

A number of places, though not listed in my books, have put out 
signs to indicate that they are approved and recommended by me. 

I urge you to look in the current edition of "Lodging for a Night" 
to ascertain if they are listed therein before patronizing them.

It is understood where pets are permitted that this means small ones only, 
that they are house-trained, that they will not annoy guests and that the owners 
will be responsible for any damage done by the pets. Also that in no cases are 
pets allowed in dining rooms. 

This year you will find opposite each town and city listed in the 
United States map co-ordinates, such as Shell D-6. These co-ordinates 
refer to the state maps which the different oil companies issue. These 
maps may be obtained easily at the nearest service station. As far as 
possible, I have tried to designate maps of companies having large 
distribution in the states mentioned, as Conoco, Shell, Socony, Texaco, 
and others. 

I believe this feature will be of great value in helping you find 
quickly the location of various places. I shall welcome comments which 
will guide me as to whether or not I continue the idea in future editions. 

PLEASE DO NOT ASK FOR ADVERTISING RATES 

in my books. For obvious reasons, I cannot accept any com- 
mercial advertising, 

WARNING TO PLACES LISTED 

It is a distinct disappointment to me to learn that a surprising number 
of people have gone to listed places and received free meals and lodging 
because they have claimed to be relatives of mine traveling through the 
country to check on places, or that they were responsible for the place 
being included in my book. 

Please remember I have authorized no one to make such demands 
and they should be refused.

Monterey Peninsula 

The best way to enjoy the charm of Monterey Peninsula with 
its fascinating blend of romance, history and natural beauty is to 
take the famous Seventeen Mile Drive. If it's a sunny day you'll 
understand afterwards why tourists leave reluctantly and why so 
many come back to live here. On this drive, which follows the 
irregular outline of the peninsula, you'll see swanky Del Monte 
hotel ... the waterfront of Monterey with picturesque old 
Fishermen's Wharf and its colorful fleet of sardine boats . . . 
many old adobes dating from colonial times when Monterey was 
the first capital of California . . . marvelous views of the blue bay 
with its crescent shore and the Santa Cruz mountains . . . historic 
landmarks, including many of California's famous "firsts" Colton 
Hall, where the first state constitution was drafted; First Theatre, 
still used for hilariously given plays by the modern Troupers of 
the Gold Coast; first Custom House, and others. You'll catch 
glimpses of enchanting gardens as beautiful as when the Spanish 
grandees lived their romantic, lavishly hospitable lives; and per- 
haps you'll remember the lacy shadow of trailing pepper tree 
fronds against sunny old adobe walls long after you've forgotten 
Monterey's historic data. . . . You'll see neat little Pacific Grove, 
the town where John Steinbeck wrote "Tortilla Flat." . . . You'll 
have to pay four bits to get through the toll gate into exclusive 
Pebble Beach, but it's worth it to see the world-famous Monterey 
cypress, wind-blown into weird shapes . . . Bird Rock . . . Seal 
Rock and its colony of playful sea lions . . . much-photographed 
Midway Point . . . the costly marble palace of the Crocker 
family . . . Del Monte Lodge where movie stars vacation. . . . 
You'll come to Carmel, called the "paradise for writers and 
artists," where you'll get glimpses of charming little homes half 
hidden among the trees . . . streets without sidewalks ... a mile- 
long beach of the whitest sand in the world . . . the house where 
Lincoln Steffens lived . . . and down close to the sea in a rock 
house with a tower built by his own hands the home of America's 
foremost poet, Robinson Jeffers. . . . You'll see Carmel's business 
district with trees in the middle of a steep main street at the 
foot of which the ocean rises in a blue wall; where tourists are 
delighted by shops as varied and self-consciously quaint as ingeni- 
ous architects can make them. ... If you could stay long enough, 
you'd find that an unusually cultured, mentally alert class of visi- 
tors and residents is drawn here by the flourishing little theatre 
group, a community art gallery and the annual Bach Festival, as 
well as by the lure of Carmel's exquisite natural beauty. . . . South 
of Carmel you'll find the old Carmel Mission, second of the many 
started by Father Serra, whose bones rest in a sculptured sar- 
cophagus visited every year by thousands of the faithful.

ing trip anywhere in the Northeast, making the Gaspe look 
like a level road. However, through lack of space it is impos- 
sible to do so this year so I refer those interested to my good 
friend, Mr. A. J. Campbell, Bureau of Information, Halifax,

CANAL ZONE 



A tip from a friend down at Balboa, which is not bad advice 
at all. 

"To get located in a place in Latin America, if you don't 
know, inquire carefully as to the 'best hotel in the place where 
all the American tourists go.' Make a careful note of it, and 
keep away from that place; it's probably a sucker trap. Then 
inquire as to the next best place, in case the 'good hotel' is all 
filled up. That is the place to go. There might be a couple 
of Number 2 places find out." 

The "South American Handbook" is the "Bible" of the in- 
formed Latin American traveler. Published annually and costs 
$1.00. 

Get water you know is good or boil the bad water. There 
is nothing sure about magic pills dropped into impure drinking 
water. 

Get typhoid and smallpox shots in advance.

MEXICO 

LAND OF ROMANCE, BEAUTIFUL SCENERY, PLEASANT PEOPLE, 
ALLURING DAYS OF PLEASURE AND RELAXATION. . . . 

The following information, gathered during my December, 1939, visit is the 
personal opinion and observation of the writer who alone assumes respon 
sibility but assures the reader all recommendations are without favor and foi 
your best observance. 

TOM R. WILSON, Manager, Beacon Tavern, Barstow, California. 



MOTORING TO MEXICO CITY: 

PAN AMERICAN HIGHWAY, 760 miles, all paved, in excel- 
lent condition. Your port of entry is from Laredo, Texas. 

Before you leave home be certain to secure Certificate of 
Ownership for your automobile, carry it with you, as it must be 
produced when getting Automobile Permit. Carry American Ex- 
press Traveler Checks, as they are the best known and are 
more easily cashed, especially in the smaller towns in case of 
need. 

Plan to arrive in Loredo during the afternoon or evening. 
Next morning visit the A.M. A. (Asociacion Mexicana Automo- 
vilistica) office around the corner from the Hotel Hamilton, 
where you will find a well-trained staff who will attend to all your 
entry needs, as follows: A tourist card for each person, an Auto- 
mobile Permit, and I urgently advise COMPLETE AUTOMO- 
BILE INSURANCE for each day of your planned stay in Mexico. 
Rates are from 50c per day for small cars to $1.50 for the larger 
and expensive makes and will save you much annoyance in case 
of accident or car trouble. Change $10.00 for each person into 
Mexican currency. 

Leave Laredo not later than noon. At the Mexican Customs, 
across Laredo Bridge, you must unload all baggage for inspec- 
tion, after which all bags are sealed or marked and should not 
be defaced or broken as there are two inspection stations be- 
tween Laredo and Monterrey where you must show your papers 
and if asked allow second inspection of seals and marks. 
PLEASE REMEMBER, you are now in Mexico, another man's 
country, where customs may be strange to you but perfectly 
proper to the natives. You will always find English speaking 
people in all the Highway Towns and during all my visits, 
NEVER, has there been a time when I was not treated with 
greatest consideration and courtesy, and in case of trouble a 
helping hand was always ready. In spite of many stories, lately 
printed, gasoline filling station employees were always on the 
job, my tires checked, windshield wiped, and oil and water 
markers looked at, and many of the stations are new and mod- 

166 



MEXICO 



ern. We now leave Laredo and following Marker Mexico 1, 
start for Monterrey 146 miles ahead. You will love this coun- 
try and enjoy every minute of your visit. The following towns 
and places of lodging are listed in proper order as you go to- 
ward Mexico City. 

BE CONSIDERATE BE PATIENT DRIVE CAREFULLY 



Hotel and Court rates are not given. Two persons in most courts will be 
from 6.00 pesos. In Highway Hotels 8.00 pesos, while the average cost for 
twin beds in the average hotel will be from 12.00 to 15.00 pesos. Ask their 
rates when you register. 

1 kilometer is 0.62 of a mile. 

17 kilometers is about 10 Vi! miles. 

1 liter is 0.26 of a gallon. 

1 gallon is 3.79 liters. 

To convert kilometers into miles, divide by two and add 25% 
Thus, 40 kilometers would be 20 plus 5, or 25 miles. 

SABINAS HIDALGO. 83 Mi. 

Small town, where you will find Powers Cafe, Cabins and Curio store. Ex- 
cellent food. 

MONTERREY. 63 ML Total 146.

largest and new. Ancira, old and mellow, with charm unspoiled by modern 
conveniences. 

At the Colonial, under the excellent management of Tony Malo, you will 
receive every consideration and attention and should be most comfortable.

All rooms have tub or shower. 

La Silla Courts. 60 units, some with kitchenettes. The newest and most

Palmas and Brick's Courts offer less expensive quarters for those who 
wish them. Clean and comfortable. 



TAMAZUNCHALE, (Tomas and Chale). 67.7 Mi. Total 538.3. 

A town you will want to linger in. Sunday is market day, when mountain 
Indians come in to trade and visit many interesting types. 

D. Z. Courts. Under Mr. and Mrs. D. Zelinsky. Offer ten modern 
cottages, set in tropical garden. Best of food and an atmosphere of home 
comfort. Try a D. Z. Special drink. Drive through Main St. about % of a 
mile, stop at gate, honk horn. I like the Zelinsky's. So will you. 

Rogers, Sol, and Pemex Courts also offer overnight cottages with moderate 
rates. 

From here, next morning, you start up into the beautiful mountain country. 
Ask about fog conditions. Allow not less than seven hours for drive to 
Mexico City. Next one hundred miles have stretches with many curves. 
All turns are well banked and have guard rails or walls in most places.

Kentucky Hickory-Smoked Hams 




TyfY grandfather came to Kentucky 
1 ^ from Virginia in 1824. It was 
not long before his hams gained a 
reputation for their superior flavor, 
and today I adhere to his original 
recipe. My hams are prepared in De- 
cember, January, and February, but 
are shipped throughout the year, as 
long as the supply lasts. 

Hickory smoking requires about forty 
days. The long process of curing 
results in a shrinkage of about 24% to 
33% from its original weight. This 
shrinkage in weight, plus the long, 
laborious process of curing, accounts 
for the necessity of pricing these hams 
a little above the cost of the usual 
meat market type. 

Mold on this type of ham is like 
mold on some cheeses, an evidence of 
correct curing and aging, with this 
difference it is easily washed off the 
ham. 

Occasionally in carving one of these 
hams, you may notice small white 
specks scattered throughout the lean 
meat. These specks are nothing more 
than salt and indicate not only that 
the salt has thoroughly penetrated 
through the hams in seasoning, but it 
also implies that it is not too new. 



While these white specks are not 
requisite in this type of ham, they are 
regarded by connoisseurs as a welcome 
sign. 

When baked, these hams are nearly 
always served cold and sliced thin. In 
the South, we usually place a ham at 
one end of the table and a turkey or 
other hot meat at the other end. For 
buffet lunches or suppers, the ham 
may be accompanied with scalloped 
oysters, etc. 

The best way to keep a baked ham 
fresh and moist, after the first day's 
serving, is to wrap it in a damp (not 
wet) napkin and place it in a crock 
and during hot weather, place in a 
refrigerator. 

You need not cook the ham as soon 
as received. It will keep for a long 
period, if hung in a cool place (not 
refrigerator) and kept free from flies 
and other insects. 

My Kentucky Hickory-Smoked Hams 
are widely known for their enticing 
flavor and are delicious whether fried, 
broiled, or baked. 

My supply of hams is limited. 
Average weight, 15 pounds, which is 
what most people prefer. The price 
is 47 cents per pound uncooked.

THANK YOU FOR 
YOUR CO-OPERATION 

in making this as nearly an accurate and reliable guide as possible. 

Places go* out of business, new places are started, managements or 
policies change. Therefore, it is necessary to issue new editions yearly. 

Before using the postcard enclosed in this book to recommend a new 
place, first look and see if it is not already listed in the current edition. 

IT IS IMPORTANT TO GIVE INFORMATION CORRECTLY, as it 
will save an enormous amount of detail work in my office. Be sure you 
give the complete name of a place and that it is spelled correctly, with 
full street address (or auto route number) and Post Office name of 
village or town and if possible how far it is located in a given direction 
from a large city. 

Many times I receive recommendations for places to be included in 
this book, but the information is inadequate or arrives too late to go in 
the next printing. REMEMBER, IT TAKES QUITE A LITTLE TIME 
FOR ME TO PROPERLY CHECK A PLACE. 

Modern Guest Houses, located in the country or at the edge of a town, 
or hotels and up-to-date Auto Courts away from noises, are the types 
of places most desired by discriminating motorists. 

Constructive criticisms and suggestions are welcome; when writing 
me (on one side of paper, please) it is necessary that you be specific, 
as merely stating that a place listed should be replaced by another does 
not help much unless you give details. Your letters will be held in 
confidence. 

Cordially, 

DUNCAN HINES
